One or more of the following:
-to keep your grubby mitts from gunking up the steering wheel
-to keep your grubby mitts comfortable when the wheel is too cold/hot
-to keep the skin from peeling off your grubby mitts because you don't have power steering in your large, heavy vehicle
-to maintain grip between your hot, sweaty little hands and the wheel

With the M3 wheel, hot and cold usually don't matter too much. The thin leather ones I have are pretty good at maintaining grip without making my hands sweaty. I also didn't want to ruin the finish on my Momo wheel in the E30, so I actually make good use of them.
